Brief history of a ceiling fan

A ceiling fan is a mechanical fan, which is mainly powered by an electrical energy. In most cases, the above gadget is suspended from the room’s ceiling. Indeed, ceiling fans have been in use as long as there is electricity. However, did you know that ceiling fans actually go back a lot further than you thought? Research has shown that ceiling fans have been in use as far back as the Greeks, Roman Empire, and even the Ancient Egypt. During that time, they were manpower operated. Needless to say, the first ceiling fan appeared in the United States in the early 1860s and 1870s.

Since then, the popularity of ceiling fans has been increasing tremendously and nowadays, it is used throughout the world.

In fact, as you walk around coffee shops, some traditional shop houses, hawker centers, and some individual’s homes, you will see some of the above gadgets doing some good work.

How a ceiling fan cools down a room

Despite the fact that the above gadget has been in use from time immemorial, very few people know the mechanism of its operation and how it cools doom a room. Indeed, many people have a little piece of knowledge about how it works; they just know that what you need to do is switch on the power button.’ As soon as power is on, the blades will start to rotate, which will in turn release cool air and cool breeze. If you need to change the fan’s strength, you just need to adjust the knob. Superficially, the above theory appears like this to many individuals. So, how does ceiling fan work exactly?

Well, it turns out that the above basic piece of knowledge is a good guess and it can be taken to be a good approximation of how ceiling fans work. Indeed, the above superficial theory is a pretty awesome summary as to how the above gadget operates. The truth of the matter is that a ceiling fan is made of several key components, which include the power source (which works as a switch), the fan blades, and the motor. When the switch button is pressed on, an electric current will be produced, which will travel to the fan motor. As an electric current flows near the fan motor, magnetic induction will occur that generates magnetic field. This generated field will exert a magnetic force on the motor. The electrical energy in the motor is converted into mechanical energy. This energy is transferred to the fan coils that is attached to the blades, which makes the coils to move. Indeed, as the coils begin to move, the result is that blades will start to move as well, and that is what we usually see-that is the spinning of the fan’s blades. As the blades rotates/spins, it will create something called air draught, a phenomena which makes hot air to rise and cool air to sink. This allows those who are under the ceiling fan to feel a cool fresh breeze. It is important for readers to understand that a ceiling fan does not lower the temperature of the surrounding area just like what an air conditioner does. However, the above gadget causes cool breeze and improves air circulation within an enclosure.


The above overview is a comprehensive analysis on how a ceiling fan does its work. Since knowledge is power, it is very important to known more than the layman understanding of how the above gadget works. Therefore, if you read through the above content, you will be placed in a better position and equipped with in depth knowledge in regard to ceiling fan operation.
